5.0 out of 5 stars Absorbing reading, 13 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Still reading it. PLF must have had an incredible memory for small details. This written many years later than the events is so well written that you can completely envisage the journey. A fascinating record of Europe leading up to the second World War. Someone should make a film of PLF 's life story! (other than Ill Met by Moonlight).

5.0 out of 5 stars Karsavina. The romantic link from Russian Ballet through Ballet Russes to Royal Ballet, 17 Sept. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
They say that no one ever had anything detrimental to say about Tamara Karsavina. Reading her memoirs you can understand why. This beautiful dancer, who worked incredibly hard all her life and kept her dignity throughout old age in Hampstead, lived through some of the most dramatic times in history. She had immense success in Russia and Europe, (and a complicated lovelife!) but writes with modesty and discretion. Published originally back in the thirties this biography could have been dated but I found it in the 'impossible to put down' category. Essential reading for those who love the Ballet and its history.

5.0 out of 5 stars Irina: Ballet, Life and Love, 30 Mar. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
If you love the Ballet or been a dancer this book is enthralling. It covers a period when the Ballet in Europe, as it is now, was being formed. Those Russians, whose families left at the Revolution, have the most amazing tale to tell and this is told in a very readable and fascinating way. You cannot help but admire and like Irina Baronova.
